The United Kingdom of Tlord is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed population of 403 million tordians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deutschland. The average income tax rate is 53.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Tlordian economy, worth 29.9 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,228 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The military is blowing up any threat to employment within the nation, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, passengers often cause a stink on public transport, and the world still seems flat to some people in space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tlord's national animal is the beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tlord is ranked 50,879th in the world and 1,664th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 97.47 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
